Thanks, y'all. Glad to see this thread continues to be busy. One of the things I like about this one in particular is the wide range of styles, themes, locations. It's nice and open.

OK, so I will "bite"...

What creature is the owner of the mandible in the second photo?

Tetons

Scanned from one of my Mom's 35mm slides. May have been taken on August 18th 1959, the morning after the Yellowstone Earthquake. Shot through the windshield probably at around 65 MPH. It is possible that dad stopped the car so she could take the shot, but I would not bet any more than 50 on it.

In my experience of taking many through the windshield photos it doesn't strike me as such. Here is why:

There is a clearly defined almost perfect horizon line, very little optical distortion that shooting through another piece of curved glass almost always creates and the image is actually quite sharp with relatively little blur relatively speaking from one portion of the photo to another so there is little to no indication of movement.

So for these reasons unless your Mom was exceptionally accomplished at taking images from a moving vehicle without any of these tell tale signs I would have to conclude that this image was taken while stationary.

Of course I could be completely wrong but based on the reasons I cited relative to the image I see that is my suspicion.

First post in the thread :)

Somehow, I've been on ehMac for years and I've never posted here...

Here's a sample of the sort of stuff I do. Taken near Blakeney, ON, on Sept 29th.

You may be right. It seems very unlikely but the only other alternative is that Dad stopped the car. If Dad did pull over then it was almost certainly the morning after the Yellowstone Quake. We were camped just South and West of Yellowstone. Even so we slept through the quake but did experience a severe aftershock when driving through this area towards the Tetons. May be why Dad condescended to stop. The shock did move the car over into the oncoming traffic lane when it hit, Dad may have needed a few minutes to recover.
